This half term we will be linking our History, Science and English learning. We will be reading the novel Stig of the dump by Clive King and we will be learning about rocks and soils and the stone age. We will use this learning to write our own stories based on Stig of the Dump and information texts.
Autumn 1 There's No Place Like Home.
This half term we will be focusing our learning on folk tales and using a local folk tale The Lancashire Giant to write our own version of a folk tale. We will also be studying local legend Sir Tom Finney and finding out about features of biographies.
